Booker T revealed in PWTorch’s latest Podcast that Ryback has the support of the WWE locker room during his mega-push.
“Definitely, I think the locker room is rooting for him. He knows what the respect issue is in the business. He knows what that really, really means, and how far he’s going to go or not go (based on respect).”
Booker also noted Ryback has been around longer than most people think, which has helped him gain respect in the locker room.
“He’s a humble kid. I do think the locker room is pulling for him to do well. The tale is going to be told after he goes out there in the big main event slot,” Booker said. “If he can pull that match up and pull that match together. If he can do that, his stock is going to go way up. If he goes out there and flops, it’s going to go way down. So, I look forward to Ryback going out there and being able to pull the job off. I really think he can get it done.”
